BrainAlert is advertised as the most effective cognitive enhancement possible. According to the manufacturer, Brain Alert LLC, the formula is based on 24 natural ingredients mixed together in a patent pending formula. The ingredients allegedly work by improving oxygen delivery to the brain, and, consequently as neurotransmitter uptake is also improved, the speed of intercellular communication increases, optimizing brain functions.
The core benefits advertised by the manufacturer are enhanced concentration and reaction time, brain cells growth, improved short term and long term memory and lower stress levels.
The product has been on the market since 2005 and is manufactured by Brain Alert LLC, as the only product in the company’s portfolio. According to the company, the supplement manufacturing was preceded by two years of research. No other website references BrainAlert whatsoever, which calls into question the formula’s effectiveness.
The manufacturer mentions over 100 studies which have shown BrainAlert to positively impact memory, mood and cognitive abilities, but does not disclose the details of these studies (methodology, sample size and characteristics, conclusions, etc.). The product is subject to a 100% money back guarantee available within a 30-day time frame.

BrainAlert is a potent brain mixture of 24 herbal ingredients, vitamins and nutrients designed to improve memory, mood and concentration.
Some of the most important herbal ingredients included in the formula are the very popular extracts of Ginkgo Biloba, Gotu Kola, Bacopa Monnieri, Ginseng and Ashwagandha. All have been linked to mood improvement, sedative and nerve calming properties.
Ashwagandha, for instance, has been used by the Indian medicine practitioners for over 3000 years. It has adaptogenic properties, which means it helps the body manage daily stressful situations. Studies conducted so far have shown positive results in nerve regeneration and improving memory, mood and thinking abilities. It is generally considered safe when taken orally in the short term. However, long-term safety is not sufficiently researched, as large doses are believed to cause stomach problems, vomiting and diarrhea.
Choline is another important ingredient of the formula. It is Acetylcholine’s precursor, a neurotransmitter known to play a significant role in many functions such as memory and muscle control. Daily recommended dosage: 1 to 3 capsules first thing in the morning, preferably on an empty stomach with a glass of water.
- The formula is covered by a 100% money back guarantee;
- The formula is prepared in an FDA approved facility that follows current GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) guidelines;
- Free shipping is available for bigger orders (more than 2 bottles).
- The manufacturer does not detail the methodology of the reviews cited in its advertising messages;

BrainAlert is a dietary supplement designed to improve memory and other important cognitive functions. The large number of ingredients is not a guarantee to ensuring the wide spectrum of benefits marketed for the formula. Still, it should be taken into consideration that the product comes with a 30-day 100% money back guarantee (less shipping charges).
Consumer reviews available are generally positive, but should also be treated with caution since they may be a mere marketing tool.
Although the formula is claimed to be manufactured in a GMP compliant facility and the product has been available on the market for more than 6 years, we recommend caution and advise our readers to see a healthcare provider prior to beginning treatment.
